Have you heard what sounds like somebody sharpening a saw by hand?

The Townsend's solitaire now on the Vineyard is a vagrant that has a home somewhere in the western third of the country.

The northward migration has started with the arrival of a few red-winged blackbirds and grackles.

We used to have to wait until late February, or even early March, to find birds that are making their way northward.

To say that we had some cold temperatures overnight on Feb. 3 and 4 would be a huge understatement!

The data from the 63rd Annual Martha’s Vineyard Christmas Bird Count has been crunched, analyzed and crunched again.
